Payment Options

Just as our online courses provide you with flexibility in your studies, our payment options give you more choice as to how you manage your course fees.

We believe everyone should have access to education, no matter their situation. So, if the cost of your preferred course is too much to pay all at once, that shouldn’t put a stop to your learning goals.

Many of our students successfully juggle their course fees with life’s general expenses - childcare, mortgages/rent, travel and other everyday costs. Every year we see more people return to education to upskill and requalify successfully, alongside their busy schedules and pre-existing commitments.

So, if you’re looking to go back into education to make your goals a reality, we can help you make it more affordable.

Please note all of our courses are self-funded, we do not accept any form of student finance.

Pay in Full

The quickest method of payment, providing complete peace of mind. This option is a popular choice for students who want to tie up any loose ends ahead of their studies.

You can choose to either:

  • Pay in full with your regular credit or debit card
  • Pay in full through your PayPal account

If you’d prefer to pay in full but can’t quite cover the cost of the fees, it may be worth speaking to your employer to see if they can help. Many workplaces are happy to contribute to the funding of online courses and continuing education if it means their employees develop skills to help them in their work.

So, if your course is going to benefit your current career, check if your employer will facilitate your learning.

Payments in full can be processed through the online application, or you can contact one of our team who can process your payment efficiently and securely.

Spread the Cost Over Instalments

Spreading the cost of your learning enables you to more easily manage your course fees alongside everyday expenses. This is why we provide different repayment plans to suit all budgets, so you can determine what is manageable for you.

You can choose to:

  • Use PayPal’s ‘Pay in 3’ to split your course fees into three interest-free payments over three months
  • Pay a £0 deposit and spread your repayments out over a period of up to 24 months – significantly reducing the monthly repayments for your course. This is made possible through our partnership with Premium Credit Ltd. Please note that credit is subject to status, and affordability, terms and conditions apply, and this is available to over 18s only

Please note if you finish your course before you finish your payments, you will not receive your qualification or certification until the balance is cleared.

Discretional Discounts

If you’re still struggling to achieve your education goals, speak to our team directly to see if there is something they can do to help you make your ambitions a reality.

We know that what is considered affordable is different for everyone, as such, our Course Booking Executives may be able to offer additional discounts to support students into learning. These additional savings can be limited based on course enrolment volumes in any given period, so if you’re looking to enrol on a course and the price is just out of reach, call our team on 01202 006 464 to see if there is anything they can do to help.

If you are a student with learndirect and are experiencing financial difficulty at any point in your learning journey, please view your options on our website, speak to our financial support team on 01202 006 464 or contact them via our online platform here.
